Complete Health Record in One Place
Founded in 2015 by Kristen Valdes, the b.well Connected Health platform integrates data, insights, and partners into a single, customized solution, enabling individuals to take control of their healthcare experience. It provides the healthcare eco-system with a long-overdue middleware, connecting separate, often complex and already existing programs, to achieve interoperability and aggregation.
The personalized health platform works horizontally across the system to consolidate a 360-degree view of consumers’ real-time data, and vertically to integrate the rapidly growing point solutions to provide timely healthcare services and support to consumers that is relevant to their needs. As a result, b.well transforms the way consumers interact with their health care by empowering them with a ‘first-screen’ mobile platform to manage all of their healthcare in one location that is persistent, portable, and personalized.
“Over the past five years, b.well has successfully partnered with self-insured employers, payers, health systems and providers by providing them the software to configure and launch their own unique digital health strategy with a sharp focus on consumer experience. Building on this strong foundation, and with increased demand for digital delivery of health services that support population health and value-based care models, we are now focusing on our growth strategy,” said Kristen Valdes, Founder and CEO, b.well Connected Health. “We welcome the opportunity to work with our new directors to advance our mission to help individuals take control of their healthcare experience.”
